SW 708: Colloquium II

Social Work

The content of this course builds upon and extends the social science research knowledge and skills acquired in Colloquium I and strengthens students’ abilities to conduct original social science research. Colloquium II affords students the opportunity to develop and refine the organizational and critical thinking skills that are required for writing literature reviews. This course also will serve as a vehicle for exploring and understanding the ethics of conducting research in collaboration with others and for examining the ethical principles and values attendant to scholarly publication in social work. In Colloquium II, students focus on a set of skills that are essential to their professional roles as social work researchers: reading, analyzing, and evaluating published social science literature reviews, and developing and disseminating a critical and comprehensive review of literature in a social work substantive area of interest in order to ameliorate distress among our most vulnerable population.
